Etiquette for Submitting Stories to Digg

Online marketing information can change quickly This article is 14 years and 234 days old, and the facts and opinions contained in it may be out of date.

I’ve been playing with digg quite a bit lately, and one of the big problems is duplicate story submissions – or power users walking over smaller users by resubmitting the same stories from different sources. In my opinion, it’s only right to give a digg to the person who originally submitted the story – assuming it is the same topic and a reasonable story (I didn’t digg the article that had “AMAZING STORY!!!” in the title today despite it having been submitted an hour earlier than the one I DID digg). So do digg a favor – if you submit a story and SEE those duplicates, don’t say “screw those guys” and submit anyhow. Give a good karmic digg, and keep hunting for another good story. Consider the time as well as the better title – if there’s 5 minutes difference, and the late guy has the better title – I vote that the better title wins. A good title (as all SEO’s know) goes a long ways, but time should generally be the main consideration.
